Live Music Events, Comedy Shows, and More: Sky Stage Summer Season

Sky Stage Hosts Shows & Events Near Carroll Creek

One great aspect of living at East of Market is that our residents are close to the many shops, restaurants, shows and events located in Downtown Frederick!  The East of Market team loves exploring Carroll Street; near the Carroll Creek Promenade, this street is home to numerous businesses including Clue IQ.

Carroll Street is also home to the seasonal amphitheater Sky Stage.  This summer and early fall, plan to check out a show or event at Sky Stage!  With an event calendar full of open mic opportunities, concerts, comedy shows, and more, Sky Stage is bound to have something for the whole family.

What is Sky Stage?

Sky Stage is a theater and gallery in Downtown, Frederick.  Sky Stage is located in a historic building that was built in 1762.  The building suffered a fire in 2010 and the roof and second floor of the structure were destroyed.  Sky Stage opened in this space in 2016 as an open air amphitheater.

What is going on at Sky Stage?

Sky Stage hosts numerous events, both pubic shows and concerts and private receptions.

Music and dance events: Sky Stage hosts a regular concert series featuring different bands and musical groups.  The theater also hosts a “Salsa Under the Stars” event, open mic nights, and a drum circle.

Comedy shows: Two regular comedy shows are hosted at Sky Stage this season.  The final performance of “Oh Crit! The Dungeons & Dragons Improv Show” for the 2018 season will be hosted on Friday, August 31.  This themed improv show previously sold out at the Maryland Ensemble Theater.  In addition, two more Stand up and Improv Comedy Nights will take place this Sky Stage season.  These shows, on Friday, August 24 and Friday, September 28, will feature several stand up comedians and improv troupes.

Art: Sky Stage also functions as an art gallery to showcase local art.  The monthly Sky Pop event is a chance for local artists, bakers, and more to demonstrate and discuss their work.

Fitness: Trying to find a creative space for fitness?  Sky Stage hosts regular yoga classes, cycling sessions, and more.

These events, and more, are located on the Sky Stage online calendar.
